    When the pool guys are going to “sleeve the sidewalk for the irrigation”.

    P.S.- I look super fat due to it being 31* out and me wearing a sweatshirt with my carhartt over it.

    Well at least it was thought about.....do you know how many concrete people don't even bother?

    True. I never talked to the pool or concrete guys. The homeowner said he would ask them to put a sleeve there. I thought it would be underneath, not in. That’s what I get for thinking and not specifically asking for what I wanted.

    Art,

    but this assumes that oneself is already the best at everything.

    Worry not that others might not be able see your skills, but that you may not fail to see theirs.

    When one doesn't have the patience or inclination to communicate to someone else what it is that they have in mind: then, definitely, one should do "it" themselves.

    ....Many times I do it myself, especially non routine things.

    Art,
    Though i must add, the opposite extreme behavior exist as well, those who armchair quarterback everthing and will never attempt once the execution of one of their own ideas..
    And I applaud you for not being one of those!

    I like your "Rule of at times": Best done by oneself.
